New Blog of the Week

I haven't named a Blog of the Week in a long long time. Mainly because most of my past Blogs of the Week have ended up surpassing me in readership, and I'm an insanely jealous person. Plus, none of them are even remotely as good as Me, CherkyB. Except maybe one, but I ended up purging that one mostly from the archives for other reasons altogether. Reasons I felt strongly about at the time, but now I think are perhaps kind of petty.

So, because I'm in a charitable mood today, I'd like to introduce you to Badgers. I don't for the life of me understand why it is that this blog is named Badgers, even though the first post tries to explain it. It is in reality the blog of The Locksmith, who as you regular readers may recall, is the boyfriend of Ellie, who in turn is the sister of The Mrs.

The thing I actually love about The Locksmith's blog is how he is so obviously in pain as a result of giving up his freedom to place himself under the heel of Ellie. Perhaps this is particularly poignant to me, having gone through the same thing with a member of the same family a bit back . ("A bit" in this case being 17 years.)

But there's nothing quite like the suffering of another man at the hands of a woman to spice up a blog, even if you aren't related to any of the characters. So go check it out.

I think I'm the one you purged and I have utterly no clue whatsoever why. Oh well, I still read yours. That trampoline thingy still has me uber impressed.

I think the pain has diminished a bit. The "cave" is getting there. Although given he's the quiet type. . .

That's really too bad, as emotional pain makes for the best blogging. No one really cares about the play-by-play of a softball game. But everyone cares when someone's nagging girlfriend gets all over his case because he didn't properly wash his cereal bowl.

you may want to consider that next time you post all your plans for your trampoline, and anything on your weather blog, for that matter.
